Re: kate editor: difficulty entering unicode characters

I installed Kate in Linux Mint MATE 19.3: it doesn't respond to the "u+101" inputs at all. But I can create the macron with AltGr + Shift and the exclamation mark* and then enter a. ā No luck. Right-Alt, plus (left or right) Shift plus !, then a, yields "!a" in my Kate. Moot point, really. I instal...

Re: kate editor: difficulty entering unicode characters

Try this if you haven't already... Press and hold CTRL+SHIFT (don't let go till I tell you) Press u and let go Type 101 Let go of CTRL+SHIFT Does that work? Nope. Not in Kate Version 17.12.3, anyway. Works everwhere else, though. (xed, gedit, komodo edit, libreoffice, etc.) I even have it programme...

Nemo edit the"Open With..." context menu list

I have been searching for an xed replacement, and find the newest gedit will do the job for me. In nemo, I right-clicked a text file, then selected Open With > Other application ... and manually entered /usr/bin/gedit, and selected "Add to List" The list then contained two entries "Text Editor"; the...

SOLVED kate editor: difficulty entering unicode characters

I get rid of xed because of its user-unfriendliness in opening files. Kate seemed to be the best alternative so far. I was trying to enter the unicode letter a-with-macron: ā -- so in the kate editing window I typed Ctrl-Shift-u then 101<space> but only "101 " appeared. How does one enter unicode ch...

You could start with uninstalling Transmission from your machine.

SOLVED firefox 73 doesn't automatically open torrents using deluge

I've been using the Deluge torrent client ever since the security problems with Transmission were reported. Today I was downloading some torrents using firefox 73, and the usual "Open/save" dialog box appeared, but Transmission was listed as default, which it wasn't doing a couple of days ago. (Then...

OK, I don't know the answer as to why the inbuilt service isn't working or why NTP is being blocked by apparmor
Thanks for your help. I'll try it.

Actually, I think something is working, because 20 or 30 seconds after I boot up, the desk clock changes to the current time.

lm19.2-CINN-64 crashes or freezes often

This happens quite often, often daily. It seems to happen when I have several apps open. The last time it was Firefox, Komodo Edit 11, Nemo, and a command window. It was a hard crash: the only thing I could do was cycle the power. (Often I can just restart the xserver by Ctrl-alt-Bksp to correct the...

Re: SOLVED thunderbird re-download recent emails

I have several email accounts, all POP. I have since found out that if I had been using IMAP I could have re-downloaded. Converting several accounts to IMAP in Thunderbird, while retaining years of emails, seems a bit complicated and prone to errors, so I'll just be more careful in the future. BTW t...

SOLVED lm19.3 timeshift configuration

When creating a snapshot, does timeshift follow symbolic links, i.e., back up everything under the link? I recently fouled up (deleted) my home directory, but it was not a complete disaster, as all my data resides elsewhere, in different partitions which show up as directories in the root. I back th...
